“I have had a long history with Honda,” says Hayden. “We’ve had a lot of good races together, won championships in the AMA, and obviously the World Championship was the big one. Sure, every day wasn’t just a big holiday but we had some good days, and I’m really grateful for the opportunity they gave me. But I think it’s time to move on, try something different; perhaps some Sponsor that won't treat me like I have Terminal B.O. or Leprosy the year following a Championship Win. You know - anybody OTHER than Honda.”
Fixed that for him.

Nicky was the HRC whipping boy, anyway. American Honda forced HRC to take him originally and outside of one year he's never been the go to guy. Bye- HRC. Hello- wins.

Honda always treated their ex-bike stars like crap. Just ask Danny Chandler, or David Bailey.

They might make great stuff, but their corporate ideology is right up there with samurai bushido and a POW camp in Korea circa WWII.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
